How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one to meet your needs. Important factors can include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, should be licensed via the appropriate Arizona regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also be members of various professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to education, resources, and a network of professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look for reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, verify a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check the status of its license through the Arizona licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be determined by factors like your location, the size of your house, and the type of pest being treated.

You can look into whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that uses environmentally friendly methods.

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used around your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about the pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Pest control experts looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Flagstaff

Not all pests are equally prevalent in Flagstaff. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Mosquitoes: You're at greater risk of a mosquito infestation if you live in a wetter area. They're also more common during the warmer months. Mosquitoes can be more than just annoying—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
  • Fleas: These pests tend to prefer warmer weather and often get into your home by hiding in pet fur.
  • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like garages, attics, sheds, and roof overhangs. They have painful stings and are often difficult to eliminate. Your local pest control technician can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.
